Re: Mike Dunleavy will be Tulane's new BB coach

Any word on his assistants? He needs a young stud recruiter and an NCAA Vet on the bench.

Re: Mike Dunleavy will be Tulane's new BB coach

WOW!!!! Had to make sure this wasn't a dream last night. This is a HUGE hire in every way. We just hired an NBA COACH OF THE YEAR!!!! My only concern is that the Pelicans steal him away next year to be GM/Coach.... Troy Dannen early lead for AD of the year.

WOW!!!!!!!!!!

Agree. This guy can coach and he will attract quality players. Having a son playing in the NBA helps with recruiting too. This is a huge hire.

Re: Mike Dunleavy will be Tulane's new BB coach

Big time coach. Shocked he took this job. High school kids will want to play for an NBA coach bc of his experience and connections at the next level. Chris Mullin is crushing it at ST John's with recruits. And Larry Brown has always won at the college level.

Huge hire. Very excited.

Re: Next Mens Basketball Coach

Grant is the best name publicly associated with the position right now. I'm a fan if Seth Greenberg but I haven't heard anything connecting him. Don't forget that Grant spent 10 years recruiting for Billy Donovan at Florida. All you need is 1 or 2 big recruits to turn a program around. I'd be very p...

What search firm? Where's the idea coming from that Dannen is using a search firm? Dannen has a list and is conducting the search himself is all Iread. I don't believe he used a search firm to hire Coach Fritz. "Speaking of St. Louis…former Alabama head coach and current Oklahoma City Thunder assis...

Thus far, the rumored names have ranged from tepid to lackluster...

NOT feeling this at all. He will not be able to land any big time recruits.

Re: Next Mens Basketball Coach

This is a huge hire for TD. You can turn a basketball program around quickly. Just need a couple solid recruits unlike football. Not rocket science. Tulane program needs a great recruiter (Perry Clark/Jerald Honeycutt) AND a good X&O guy. Has to be both for a program like ours. Perfect example is La...

Interesting list. Bob Marlin has to be in serious consideration based on his ties to Fritz and Pierce at Sam Houston State (I'm assuming he was there with them...can anyone conform that?)

I agree that it shouldn't be a criteria. Just pointing out that we could have a top notch coach for a long period of time. But yes, I'd love for him to win NCAA tourney and bolt for Kentucky.

Re: Next Mens Basketball Coach

I've always been a fan of Seth Greenberg dating back to his Long Beach State days. Sharp basketball guy who will build a competitive team and will not be looking to leave.
